Graf has been an interesting company lately, and remains one to keep an eye on. Behind Chairman of the Board, Claude Lemieux, Graf has launched new products, developed patent pending technology, and created innovative new products. The new year will be no different for Graf, as they plan more new product launches to try to grab more market share from their competitors.
New for 2013 will be the Graf Ultra G9035 skates. This new skate will be the top price point skate to feature Graf’s new MCI technology. This new technology will help the Graf Ultra G9035, and other skates with the technology, to focus on forward flex and heel lock.
The Graf Ultra G9035 skates will feature multiple stiffness levels in the quarter package material to help create an optimum fit for every player depending on their size and strength. The G9035 will also feature a 3D comfort liner, which is not only lightweight, but non absorbant as well. Fit was definitely a focus when developing these new specs, and as such, the Graf Ultra G9035 will provide great comfort, forward flex, and 3D heel lock to ensure a great fit.
Additionally, the Graf Ultra G9035 will feature a thermoplastic carbon fiber quarter package. It will also utilize V2 Surlyn technology to improve durability. It’s also interesting to note that the tongue on these skates will feature heat moldable materials as well, helping to create an optimum fit.
Beneath the boot, the G9035 will come standard with a texalite outsole, and Graf’s Ultra 5000 holder.
The Graf Ultra G9035 skates will come in both senior and junior sizes, with a variety of widths and flexes. Senior sizes will be 6-12, both full and half, while junior will be 3.5 – 5.5. Senior skates will come in narrow, regular and wide widths, and junior skates will come with only regular and wide. For senior skates, you can choose from 75, 85 and 95 flexes, while the junior skates will come in 45 and 55.
